There are some tough decisions ahead for Canada’s head coach, Bev Priestman, as she looks to name her 18-player roster for the Tokyo Olympics. Heading into the Olympics, Canada has a record 3-2-2 with big wins over England and Wales, but it’s not all sunshine and roses.
Canada has been shut out four times this year, with goal-scoring being a familiar challenge. Canada hasn’t scored a goal in the last 186 minutes. The defense has been terrific with five clean sheets and a current streak of 411 minutes without allowing an opposition goal.
The 35-year-old Priestman would like to name her Olympic roster within the next 10 days. Canada wants to bring a squad with a mix of veteran and youthful players and that could result in some key players being left off Canada’s Olympic roster.
